|Flyin' Miata projects in the shop
|Our shipping manager, Kathleen called in for a mere foot of snow.|
What's up with that ;-)
|A dreek day in Palisade.|
An inversion has us locked in the clouds and chilly.
|Why yes, we do work on Miatas.|
There are just as many in the other direction. We've got everything from a stock 1.6 automatic to a supercharged 2013 in the shop right now.
|This 2013 MX-5 arrived here with 2,376 miles on the clock.|
We're going to give it back with the full Targa Package treatment. It's great to work on, everything is pristine. Not even dusty.
|Our newest catalog is in the mail, bigger than ever!|
If you've had any contact with us in the past three years, you should get a copy. You can also download it.
|Lance Schall hits 300,000 miles with his 1990 Miata.|
Be our friend and see pics of the car on Facebook.
|Nothing to do with cars - but the orchards around the Flyin' Miata shop sure look good at this time of year.|
|Plastic radiator end tanks get brittle with age.|
This one's about 12 years old. It's good preventative maintenance to replace them every 10 years or so, especially when they turn green.
|This is not what you want to find when you pull your oil pan.|
|Kyle works on the clutch line before installing the engine.|
The previous shop just randomly bent it up, it's a lot easier to fix with the drivetrain out like this.
|The turbo installation is coming along nicely on the 1.6.|
We'll be test-driving it today.
Kyle shows off the 1.6 that's here for a turbo installation. It showed up on race rubber, that's always a good sign.
|Here's a shot under the clamshell of that Sprite.|
The shop had to move a few things around to fit the FM II. If you've ever worked on one of these cars, you know how impressive this is!
|This little Bugeye Sprite was built by Coastal Auto Restoration and Performance.|
It's hiding a 1994 Miata drivetrain with an FM II under that hood. Does that sound like fun or what?
|A new engine build has begun.|
This is an MZR from a 2006+ Miata, and it's being upgraded all the way through. Forged crank, forged rods, FM pistons, oversize valves - it'll be a sweetheart.
|Another Westfield being carefully packed for its sea voyage.|
|Moonshine goes to Bristol Motor Speedway for some exercise!|
|Atomic Betty spent the day at the Vail Wings and Wheels car show.|
A beautiful day to spend amongst some very cool cars. When Vail brings out the toys, they are some toys.
|This 2001 came to us with Mazdaspeed engine and turbo system already installed.|
We'll add in a few more ponies and make it a happier car!
|Ed Avol went to a car show last weekend and accidentally won this trophy for the best Miata.|
Nice work, Ed! This does not look like a car with 410,000 miles on the odometer.
